Rod Tulloss send me the following comment after looking at the photos:

“I wonder if the photographer would agree that the stipe is entirely covered with yellow powder and lacks an annulus. It looks like that in the top picture. If there were the case, perhaps it is a specimen of Amanita parcivolvata that has had the red fade in the outer part of the cap. ?? If indeed the stipe is powdery yellow and exannulate, parcivolvata is the only name that is appropriate in the SE US. The species is rather common there in oak-pine areas. Of course, it is a pity there is no dried specimen. Perhaps, the photographer could take a look at the parcivolvata page on the Amanita Studies web site.”

I sent this comment on to William which apparently inspired him to update the name.

Probably better as just Amanita sp.

I don’t know the whole story, but according to Index Fungorum Amanita junquillea is a deprecated synonym for A. gemmata. Since I don’t recognize the species, I’d just call this one Amanita sp.
